Dual Immersion Application Timeline for 2015-2016 School Year

Posted in News & Announcements

Believe it or not, the time has arrived for those families who have students that will be entering 1st grade for the 2015-2016 school year to begin thinking about the immersion programs throughout Canyons District.  The application window for applying is open from September 30, 2014 to November 26, 2014.  You may apply online at:

http://csdworldlanguage.weebly.com/elementary-dual-language-immersion.html

It is crucial that you still fill out an application for your son or daughter that may already have a sibling in the program.  Siblings do receive priority enrollment, however, if you do not fill out an application for them, we assume you do not want them in the program.  Please make sure you fill out an application for your son or daughter even if they have a sibling in the program.  

Here are some other important dates to remember regarding this process:

Important Bus Information

One-Time Bus Riding Privileges

One-time bus riding privileges (on a bus other than the student’s assigned bus) are considered on an individual basis when warranted by exceptional circumstances. Written parent notification must be given to the school office before noon on the same morning of the pass. The office staff will complete a “One-Time Riding Pass” and give it to the student ten minutes before the final bell rings.  The student must then present the signed pass to the bus driver.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Due to limited space on buses and liability, bus passes should only be used for exceptional circumstances, not on an ongoing basis.
  • Bus drivers may refuse to let students board a bus that is not their assigned bus without an approved pass.
  • Transportation will not be provided to students on permit.
